You have lost much, endured much...but you cling to the memory of your sacrifices, of all the things you have lost or left behind. They drag behind you, like chains of your own making. They have a terrible power over you - the power of grief, and loss, and regret. You have let go of the people, the places, the things, but you have not let go of the pain. You have not forgiven yourself.
